Bora Bora Weather

French Polynesia enjoys a balmy tropical climate, with hot and humid weather all year round.

The dry season runs from May to October, when the average annual temperature of 27°C (81°F) is tempered by refreshing sea breezes.

July and August are the coolest months of the year due to southeast trade winds called the maraamu with temperatures averaging 24°C (76°F).

During the full moon period – especially in late September and late March – the play of the sun heightens the islands colourful lagoons while the moonlight creates dramatic mountain silhouettes.

The wet season lasts from November to May, with February and March the hottest months. Daily temperature averages 31°C (88°F), with a night time low of 24°C (75°F). Tropical cyclones can develop between November and March.

Seasons

Peak season: July and August – the traditional July-to-August holiday period in France also coincides with Tahiti's month-long Heiva Nui festival, held throughout July.

Christmas to early January, late February, early March, Easter, early May and early October are also regarded as peak periods when flights and hotel rooms need to be booked well in advance.

Tip: May, June, September and October offer the best combination of weather and availability of hotel rooms.
